Baptist Health Systems and a team of area business supporters will magically transform Madison, Miss. into a winter wonderland this holiday season called Christmas on Ice. This family-friendly event will be open from November 17 – January 6 for kids of all ages and will be located on the corner of Highway 463 and Highland Colony Parkay on the Baptist Madison Campus.
Baptist Health Systems’ Christmas on Ice includes:
• 7200 square foot Ice Rink
• 125 foot long Ice Slide
• Trustmark Stage featuring up to 51 concerts in 51 nights
• Pepsi Pavilion hosting Birthday, Corporate, and Church Parties
• 32 foot tall animated Christmas performing hourly light shows
• The Christmas Story Trail depicting the birth of Christ
• Thousands of lights and hundreds of decorations
Baptist Health Systems President and CEO Mark Slyter said, “We have long been recognized as the state’s leader in healthcare, but more importantly we are also followers in faith. We want to present a wonderful Christmas gift to our community as a simple thank you for placing their trust in us.”
Baptist appreciates the support of area businesses helping with Christmas on Ice, as of October 1, 2012, including the Trustmark, Pepsi, Mississippi Baptist Convention Board, Tulane University, Shelter Insurance, Community Bank, Marchetti Robertson and Brickell, and Ridgeland Tourism.
“This will without question be the ‘coolest’ event in the South,” added Director on Ice Steve Hutton. “Picture a mom and a dad spending the day with their children Ice Skating, eating at our outdoor café, walking hand in hand down the Christmas Story trail, and even having an opportunity to pick out their family Christmas tree all at the Baptist Madison Campus.”
Concerts will begin every evening at 6:30pm featuring choirs from area churches including Broadmoor, First Baptist Madison, Christ United Methodist, Morrison Heights, Crossgates, New Horizon and more. Area school choirs will also be on stage including Madison Avenue Elementary, Pearl High School, Florence Middle School, Northwest Rankin Middle School, and more.
